We spent two weeks in Mandalay and worked as a volunteer in the Phaung Daw Oo Monastical High School. The Café Brolly is on a side street from the Royal Palace to the east. Besides the lovely service and good food and drink at reasonable prices was mainly the strong WIFI important for us. The new owner (since November 2013), has also worked in Malaysia. All in all, the Café Brolly is a quiet place to get a good coffee (double espresso is really strong ...) or to treat yourself to eat a burger or a delicious Thai dish and check your mail besides.
a nice restaurant in a quiet section in Mandalay. You can sit either inside or outside. The service is quite friends. The food is really burmese, not too spicy but very tasteful. The only problem is the proximity of the karaoke ! You will enjoy a diner is this restaurant
This quiet little oasis on the east side of the palace is a lovely retreat from the heat. The staff and service were superb during my lunchtime visit. I was craving fries after eating so many noodles. They were absolutely divine! Hot, fresh, and crispy. The mixed green salad was a generous serving of fresh greens, but beware, it is ladened with mayonnaise. The WiFi wasn't as storng a sI had hoped for given the other reviews here but in hindsight, I didn't notice the last review was from late 2013. You cna find faster WiFi in other places so don't make that the reason you visit Cafe Brolly. And I found the prices to be very fair. Enjoy!
Base don some reviews I told a bike ride there this evening. The place is on the outskirts and stands along in a very quiet road which in itself is fine, bear in mind however that it isn't in walking distance really unless you are on that specifies side of the Palace wall.. Initially good greetings, lovely vibe, private rooms to eat, outside area or air conditioned inside. Setting wise no issues at all... until you sit down and are bombarded by some abominable Karaoke sounds..I found myself listening to a bloke who sounded like he had just been strangled. .. perhaps he should have been. Menue - great if you dance a pasta Bolognese, Pork, a Burger,, Mutton, in fact anything Western but hey, where is the Veggie and where is the Burmese? - not forgetting Chinese! I asked the waiter who was extremely gentle and kind aside from the occasional gobbing on the floor, that vile brown liquid that comes from the beetle nut tobacco/alcohol. mixed in the leaf. .... I thought the place is Vegetarian I told him..yes we have meat but you can have vegetables if you want! After much negotiation they offered to push the boat out (just as well as the monsoon rains began to chuck down so I was stuck there anyway!) - and make me a plate of noodles with Vegetable. I waited and waited, Finally so hungry I ate what was placed in front of me. It was like a student dish that one might have thrown together back at the dormitory kitchen or back at the student apartment. To be fair my waiter when I requested some Cashews to add flavour and crunch did do so and tried his best to accommodate. And there you have it. In all then contrary to popular believe there are NO Vegetarian restaurants in the city aside from that awful Indian gaff I samples last night. Apparently to be fair this place once WAS but changed hands.. Conclusion a decent enough place to sit so long as thou don't mind Karaoke as background music, are partial to a burger os a Bolognese, maybe Chinese, but are NOT looking for Vegetari
The restaurant impressed me most is the food here, really very good, well worth the try. Also the restaurant is very clean, the environment in the store is very comfortable, I think this is a good restaurant.
